Living in Edo, Eiri (栄里) designed prints around the turn of the 19th century. Both a ukiyo-e printmaker and painter, this pupil of Hosoda Eishi produced elegant bijin-ga and portraits. The tall, slender women portrayed in Eiri's work echo those of his teacher, while his bust portraits suggest the influence of Utamaro. Notably, the famous portrait of novelist Santo Kyoden has been attributed to Eiri under his go,or "artist name," Reikisentei. Some confusion exists between scholars whether to consider Eiri as three different men, one for each ;go - Chokyosai, Reikisentei, and Shikyusa, - or as Hosoda Eiri, one man using a variety of names.
